The physiochemical properties and heavy metal concentration of groundwater from various locations in Maronu street, Akure metropolis were analysed using standard methods of analysis. The sample taken from nine different locations within the vicinity of a dumpsite revealed: physico-chemical parameter: Temp (27.70 – 29.600C), pH 9.2 – 9.4, TDS (130 – 244 mg/L), Total hardness (59 – 190 mg/CaCO3), Cl- (32 – 265 mg/L), SO4 (10.50 mg/L) and PO4 (1.50 – 3.10 mg/L). The ranges of metal concentrations were: Na (10.80 – 25.70mg/L), Ca (27 – 124mg/L), K (12.50 – 19.10mg/L), Mg (0.94 – 3.25mg/L), Fe (0.75 – 1.22mg/L), while the values for Pb, Ni, Zn and Cu were low. The parameters determined in the water samples were within the World Health Organisation (WHO) and Standard Organisation of Nigeria (SON) permissible limits. The conclusion from the study indicated that the water samples are safe for consumption, but it is highly recommended that constant monitoring should be ensured in other to avoid intake of polluted water.
